Jon Abbott's knowledge of TV science-fiction series spans four decades.

During that time, he has written regularly for all the major science-fiction magazine titles at one point or another, including Starburst, TV Zone, Dreamwatch, SFX, Infinity, Starlog U.K., DarkSide, and Cult Times, as well as mainstream titles like Video Today, Video World, Video Buyer, Stills, What Video, What Satellite, Home Entertainment, Comedy Review, and many others, including trade papers Media Week and Television Weekly. His final magazine work, before retiring to work on book projects, was contributing TV news to Starlog U.K. and retrospective features on vintage SFTV to TV Zone's Fantasy Flashback pages, as well as reviewing third season Stargate. Since then, he has had two books published in the U.S. by McFarland, and self-published several other successful titles on Amazon's Createspace platform.
